CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

There are no changes in this issue.


REVISIONS

There are revisions to the seasonally adjusted estimates due to the concurrent methodology for deriving seasonal factors.

A new base year, 2008-09, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates. This has resulted in minor revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2008-09. Additivity is preserved in the quarters of the reference year and subsequent quarters. Re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
